There are roadside fruit and vegetable stands everywhere in Jeddah. You can just pull over and buy fresh tomatoes or cucumbers without having to go into a store or even getting out of the car if you don’t want to. The two men are wearing the typical traditional Saudi garb – the long white dress called thobe and the plain white or red and white checkered scarf called ghuttra or shumagg, respectively.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
